This is Mike I think we met at DGRR last year. At the BP on the last day before we left. I was driving Brian's (TitaniumTT) FC. Love your FD
Sweet!

Yeah I remember you! I didn't realize this was you though lol.

Thanks! I'm loving your FD as well. And those welds do look really good. I still have to learn to do that myself lol.

Haha no worries. Is it Eric?

Thanks man! I still have a long way to go, but it just takes a lot of seat time.

Small update:

Made the cut outs for the wastegates. Used a plasma cutter, then cleaned up with a carbide.



Set up dual flow meter/regulators so I could backpurge the manifold during final welding.



Did the finish welding on the wastegate flanges.





While welding the second flange the foot pedal control for my TIG crapped out. I had to finish it with the 2T torch control I hate using the torch control. Had planned to finish all the welding today, but will have to wait until the new foot pedal comes in.

Awesome project!

Looking forward to see if you will be able to re-route the wastegates... I have been putting off going single, but I have been getting tired of replacing twins so a single will be in my future soon. I absolutely want a short runner manifold but for me the deal breaker is being able to reroute the wastegates. I have yet to see it done on a short runner like this.

That won't be for a while. I'll be running open dump initially. The only forcing factor for going re-route will be whenever I wanna hit up LRP. Stupid noise restriction I think it will be doable, tough but doable.

Also finished up the turbo manifold.






Will have more pics once it's cool.

I'm planning on plumbing mine into the DP too, but I've been putting it off because it seems like such a huge project and probably be a PITA to do with a short runner manifold.

Good work on the manifold btw!

Good luck with the re-route. I bet it won't be as bad as you think. What size is your downpipe?

Hey John..... Lets put it this way.... the mani Mike and I built for my car is almost a carbon copy of the one we built for his.... difference beeing because of the motor mounts and firewall placement... fitting a 4" DP in my FC was a MOTHERFUCKER...... but I built a LimeRockPipe to recirc both dump tubes back into the DP.... while it wasn't fun, it took about a day to build to use it for like 20 minutes..... hopefully I can extend that this year

So.... planning on taking this to LRP eh? LOVE IT!!! That should make up for the lack of rotaries on the track this past year

Yeahhhhh this year was pretty weak for track events. I do have a Thunderbolt day planned for Nov 10th BTW. I have a trailer now, so LRP is even more tempting now!
